the publishing process needs to be faster and more transparent. also, thoughtful comments from thoughtful reviewers should be made public. i'm impressed by the new rules for the EMBO journals (link here) - now the rest of the industry needs to move in this direction. i get the feeling something is happening that is eventful, see the schekman screed and the starting of eLife. if even the 1% are having trouble, the changes are about to happen.
